SLEGEST, the band formed by former VREID guitarist Ese in 2010, is set to play a series of dates in in their home country in November, three of which will be supporting fellow Norwegians EINHERJER, whilst a fourth will see them joining VULTURE INDUSTRIES and INCULTER in Haugesund. Routing as follows:
08 Nov, Bestatsuå, Haugesund (with VULTURE INDUSTRIES)
13 Nov, Blå, Oslo
14 Nov, Tribute, Sandnes
15 Nov, Garage, Bergen
SLEGEST’s debut full-length album “Løyndom” was released on DARK ESSENCE records at the end of last year and Ese’s skilful blending of classic heavy rock and old-school Black Metal won the band much praise from fans and press alike. So much so, in fact, that what initially started out as a solo project, quickly developed into a fully fledged live band, with Ese, on vocals and rhythm guitar, being joined by Sør (BÄÄÄV, VONBRÅTEN) on Lead Guitars, Hövard (BOMBEKLÜCHTER) on Bass and Fjøsne on Drums. A tour with label-mates TAAKE and AETERNUS followed, as well as a series of festival appearances throughout the summer.
The official video for “Ho Som Haustar Aleine” , the opening track of “Løyndom” can be seen below:
